10/11/12 10/11/12 [captioning made possible by democracy now!] >> from los alamos, new mexico, this is "democracy now!" [explosion] >> the familiar mushroom cloud hurling the deadly radiation to the heavens. >> in the special broadcast from just outside los alamos national laboratory, we look at the radioactive legacy of new mexico. the atomic bomb used in world war ii were designed and developed here. new mexico still plays a key role in maintaining the nation's massive nuclear arsenal. >> it is revitalizing its nuclear weapons production base, and again, the laboratories -- mark my words -- as the republicans already wrote, they are calling for or attempting to demand a "modern or had" that means a new designs. >> we will speak with jay coghlan of nuclear watch new mexico. and los alamos whistleblower chuck montaÑo. devastationt the uranium mining has had with leona morgan from navajo dinÉ against uranium mining. and michael reynolds on how he is quitting radically sustainable living operations through worship biotecture. >> the soldiers and all of the armies and all of th
is election day. thank you for watching. so long. >> the debate between the candidate for senate and mexico. martin heinrich and heather wilson. this debate is hosted by the sun time and kfox tv. our coverage begins after the opening statements. it is about an hour. they represent more than 60 years of journalism experience. we have a lot of experience on that side of the table. walt is going to start with the first question. >> heather wilson wrote the affordable care act is unconstitutional because of the individual mandate. if not thrown out by the supreme court, it to be repealed or replace. martin heinrich voted for the bill. what should the replacement be? if it is to be kept, what changes should be made? >> i think it is that -- important to understand why it should be repealed and replaced. it was a mistake. it is already costing jobs in the state of new mexico. it is not just jobs. it takes $700 billion out of medicare. there is only one candidate for the united states senate tonight to has voted to cut medicare. i also believe that and increases the cost of health care. we are see
on the southern border with mexico. do you still feel that this is the way to go? >> people said we cannot build a wall. i said, i would get down to the tinker toys and show them. i put together a model and said, this is how we do it. we could build a mile of this per day. this puts aside the argument, that we have 5,500 miles of the great wall of china, but my position is that we do not need 200,000 miles of wall, we just do that until they start going around the end. >> is this a concrete barrier? or a brief explanation? >> when the president ridiculed the wall, he was 600 feet from the fences and the walls and the most down along the border. i would describe this as a kind of concrete system with the foundational trench, and the concrete panels, and if you build the wall up you have to have routes on either side, with the chain-link fence by the border. we are spending $12 billion -- $6 billion per mile. >> talking about immigration is what we're talking about. president obama -- if you join congress which be supportive of this trend continuing? >> the most important thing is to secure the bo
. new mexico, joseph. hello. caller: this is a perfect segue, the chart she was just showing. obviously new mexico, we have lost a whole industry and construction. which means, that is a lot of entry-level positions, especially coming out of high school. i see so many kids, 19, 20, 21 that are coming out of high school, they cannot even get a part-time job and they are homeless. if we had a construction industry, we had to switch service, instead of new home construction, to stay in business, we had to move into a grudge just to do our work in a storage unit. host: do you own your own home? guest: i do. my mortgage is very low. it is $60,000 or so. that is what i go on it. it started out at maybe $100,000. host: thank you. guest: that is very indicative of the situation. even the we see signs of a rebound in housing, the construction industry is still getting its foot back on the ground. you are seeing younger workers suffer any long-term consequences of what is happening in the economy. even if we do recover in terms of gdp and construction, there are consequences that will continue to
] >> see the final presidential debate monday live on c-span. watch and engage. next, the new mexico senate debate between martin heinrich and heather wilson. followed by a debate between carry herbert and challenger peter cooke. before president obama and mitt romney meat for the final debate on foreign policy and national security, we will take a look back at three debates from our archives. beginning saturday at 7:00 eastern, from 2004, president george w. bush and senator john carry at the university of miami. followed at 8:30 by ronald reagan and walter mondale in kansas city in the 1984. later george w. -- leader george bush and michael dukakis. u.s. senate candidates martin heinrich and heather wilson square off in their third debate and one of the closest of the country. this race was rated as leaning democratic. we picked this up right after the opening statements. this is at -- this is about an hour. >> we will go ahead and get started with the questions, but first i will introduce our panelists. our first one to the right is the friend is managing editor. next to him is a deputy
needed for our state. we needed for our nation. we need -- the people coming from mexico here are seeking a better way of life. they are seeking worker and freedom and the american way of life. -- they are seeking work and freedom and the american way of life. i am for a package that involves everyone. it is the only way to get past this and move forward. it is so important. mexico is our number one trading partner. we talk about border patrol and many agents today. it a triple that, we're talking about thousands of agents along the border. i simply think that we have had enough division on this issue. >> great. we will move on to another question involving immigration. >> thank you gentlemen for being here with us tonight. president obama's dream act has given people a lot of hope for legal status. if elected, mr. sadler, what would you do? >> it is an executive order, so i could not do anything about that. if you talk to these young people, there were brought here by their families. they have been raised here in our schools. there are as much an american, but simply did not have a docum
of mexico. why aren't we doing that? the answer is no one's asked us to. well, i did. it's important. >> moderator: thanks. we're going to move on to another subject, a topic involving immigration, and ross has that question. >> mr. cruz, letting cubans come here illegally, become legal, an opportunity not open to or immigrants from other countries. shamed we extend that to others? should cubans be held differently there? cruz. -- cruz: the situation in that country is different, oppressive, regime that tortures and murders its citizens and the united states, for centuries, has allowed a situation of the people seeking refugee status from political oppression and torture. it's not something for me in the ab straight. my father was imprisoned and tortured by batista and my aunt was imprisoned on tortured by castro. i would love to be part of ending the cuban adjustment agent, and i think we can as soon as we don't have an o prosessive regime in cuba. if there's a regime that respects the rights of the citizens, doesn't persecute them, of course, we should change the rules, but until t
to mexico. i am trying to understand what they are trying to do with that voucher. i think people should understand a voucher has a limited. if that limit of money runs out, especially old people, and young people should be thinking about it, because we are getting older, once that voucher runs out, people will start tasting a little bit of a third world thing. when you go to a doctor like in mexico or any other third world, doctors over there ask you first before they attend to you if you have insurance or money. if you don't have either, they will tell you to go back outside. that is very worrisome. to make another comment about the debt we have, people need to understand that started with republicans throughout the years before obama. no regulations on wall street. it's very worrisome. i think obama is doing the right thing trying to regulate especially on wall street, because wall street is a funding tunnel of getting money out of this country and not taxing the rich. host: money is in oklahoma, republican. good morning. caller: the man before me was just on the talking points of the
in libya. that straight ahead. an explosive report on the shooting of a u.s. government vehicle in mexico city. were corrupt mexican police officers purposely targeting american officials? all of that and breaking news the second hour of "happening now" starts right now. >> reporter: one race, two candidates, three debates and the night everyone has been waiting for. i'm gregg jarrett in for jon scott. jenna: the night is finally here. i'm jenna leave. welcome to the second hour of "happening now." now is certainly a big night.ntr romney face-to-face for the first time on stage with an estimated 60 million americans watching, just about the same amount that is watching us right now. >> reporter: a little shy of that. jenna: a little shy of that. most voters have already made up their minds. the candidates are out to win over a shrinking number of undecideds. the key for president obama to sit out his narrow lead without a mishap while governor romney apparently needs to shakeup the rape. we'll see what our fox news political analyst brit hume thinks about that. what are you watching for i
is your prescription? pardon the expression. >> i oversaw the or form of medicaid in the mexico when i was governor of new mexico. we ticket from a fee-for- service model to a managed-care model. we saved hundreds of millions of dollars, set up better health care networks for the poor. i believe if the federal government would have a lot granted the state of new mexico 43% less money, and done away with all the strings and the mandate, i could've effectively oversee the delivery of health care to the fore. i think you apply that same template to medicare, health care for those over 65, get the federal government out of the health-care business completely , give it up to the states, in this case, block grants that balance revenues and expenditures, and that is how we ever get out of this. giving it up to the states, 50 laboratories of innovation and best practices, that is exactly what we will have. we will have some fabulous success and some horrible failure. failure of lincoln avoided, success will be emulated. that is how we will find our way out of this. host: gary johnson is with u
the failure of this administration to deal in an effective and a good-faith way with mexico, with costa rica, with the other nations in trying to find a peaceful settlement to the dispute in central america has undermined our capacity to effectively deal diplomatically in this area as well. >> sir, people as well-balanced and just as father theodore hesburgh at notre dame, who headed the select commission on immigration, have pointed out repeatedly that there will be nommigration reform without employer sanctions, because it would be an unbalanced bill, and there would be simply no way to enforce it. however, putting that aside for the moment, your critics have also said repeatedly that you have not gone along with the bill or with any immigration reform because of the hispanic groups -- or hispanic leadership groups -- who actually do not represent what the hispanic-americans want, because polls show that they overwhelmingly want some kind of immigrati reform. can you say, or how can you justify your position on this? and how do you respond to the criticism that this is another, or that thi
wanted to visit mexico. nice >> eric: it's beautiful. in florida, not mexico. a beautiful day. 85 and sunny. we got here, i got here around 11:00 this morning. people feeling the energy coming. at 3:00, the place was packed. energy is amazing. this is an epic debate. people are tuned in to what this is about. it jumped to senator john mccain first. what do you expect out of this and romney tonight? what do you expect out of obama? mccain said romney should make it clear he is not interested in fighting every fight and he has a policy of strength, peace through strength. as far as the president's concerned, let me just finish, as far as the president is concerned he said he thinks that president obama has been less than transparent with the american people. i bumped in to senator graham. he was vehement how important the debate was defining the foreign policiful he feels that obama's group is trying to redesign romney in a way he doesn't need to be defined on his own. a lot on the foreign policy debatech >> bob: i have two questions. how many pictures did you have taken down there?
at the border with mexico. the agents were on patrol when they came under fire. a new government report has found an intelligence program that formed a major part of domestic counterterrorism efforts in the united states has been almost entirely of the recess. a bipartisan report examines the network of so-called fusion centers created after the 9/11 attacks to create intelligence sharing among local, state, and federal authorities. investigators have accused the centers as being bastions of waste, having virtually informad possibly infringing of people's civil liberties. as much as $1.4 billion in taxpayer funds designated for the center has gone unaccounted for by federal officials, the report found. this is democracy now!, democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. we are broadcasting in denver, colorado. we are on the road just miles from the university of denver, the site of tonight's presidential debate between mitt romney and president obama. it is the first of three presidential debates before the november 6 election. tonight's debate will focus on domestic policy,
states and mexico. the case brought plenty of attention to the drug violence along the border, and now mexican marines say they nabbed a cartel leader known as the squirrel. he's accused of a long list of murders fission to this one. -- in addition to this one. trace gallagher has an update in our west coast newsroom. >> reporter: the big headline is the mexican military captured the man they believe is responsible for killing david hartley, but on the south side of the border the headline is this guy is one of the biggest mass murderers in history, believed responsible for executing 300 people, known as you said as the squirrel. said to be the main assassin for the very deadly zeta cartel. mexican authorities say he is the killer of both david hartley as well as the police commander who was investigating hartley's death. remember, his head was delivered in a box. you'll recall david and tiffany hartley were riding wave runners on the mexican side of the border, kind of exploring some ruins. tiffany says her husband was shot in the head. she tried to get his body on her wave runner but
, should college be provided to everyone. >> first of all, as governor of new mexico, we established lottery scholarships which allowed really any graduating high school student from new mexico to go to college with those costs paid. so woths what's the federal role, though, when it comes to education, and what's the primary reason in this country why college division tuition is so high? well, it is because of guaranteed government student loans that because of guaranteed government student loans, no one has the excuse for not going to education. and so because of that, institutions of higher learning, colleges and universities are immune from pricing that if kids would take a harder look at it, gee, i don't think i can afford $15,000 a semester, i think i will just sit this one out. when that happens en masse, i guarantee you, the cost of college tuition will drop dramatically. today that doesn't exist. i can't afford $15,000, yet friends and family will point and say, look, you can get a guaranteed government student loan. that is another one of government's unintended consequences
in mexico where the cowboy hat and ladies in this post office think barack obama was born and when they asked me with the book was about and i tell them it is an economic and social analysis of why the end of the drug war would be good for america we failed. the response is when are the tragedy's in mexico. it's not that dangerous compared to the polls and the math. when are we going to stop arresting people for pot. left wing, right wing, they will go on this for crying out loud. the truth is black-and-white. it's dangerous for me as a journalist with two decades experience to sound too much of a cheerleader about any particular issue. you people are going to think i am cheech or maybe woody harrelson. the reality is from a journalistic perspective it is black and white civilians we can put back into our economy while hurting the cartels. i know it is up to 70% of the cartel's. but the fact is quite a lot of organized crime's are not from the heroine's of the mess, we can have american farmers growing dissent taxing it and on the industrial side but north dakota back. not to cut t
,000 workers, he's actually bringing jobs back from china and mexico, where wages are going up. >> you know, with the currency weaker, with wage rates inflation lower here than the rest of the world, we think the u.s. can be quite competitive. >> what struck me is that the new plants don't hire a lot of people. you talk about hundreds instead of thousands. and i wonder, as you bring in new factories: they are so automated. >> you're going to have fewer people that do any task. in the end, it makes the system more productive and more competitive. but when you walk through mississippi, for every person that was in that plant, there's probably seven or eight in the supply chain. >> a lot of the jobs we saw were $13-an-hour jobs. that's really not the ticket, is it, to a really vibrant middle class. >> we have a range. when we go out and recruit, let's say, hire 1,000 people at between $15 and $17 an hour, we get 50,000 applicants. so i think you've got to start somewhere, but we want to hire more people. >> coming up, going with the market flow. >> 60% of g.e.'s revenues is foreign. >> when i
you about weeks ago expanded now affects products from plants in mexico dating back to march of 2010. the f.d.a. says salmonella in some samples and a california mayor wants to close the soup kitchenens. eric beaver says doing that will help with the city's problems and the councilmembers and charities are arguing that a lot of people on fixed incomes also use the soup kitchens. >> and wounded warriors are running for a cause today in virginia. the run with the warriors race raises money to help renovate apartments and housing for injured veterans and the group says it takes over $500,000 to fix up each unit. and the next story is truly one about man's best friend. a remarkable story indeed. a dog escapes his home in new york and travels get this more than two miles to visit his owner in the hospital. and the owner was hospitalized with a skin condition last week and his wife says zander, sulked and cried from the moment the husband left and zander had to cross a four lean road just to get to the hospital. and the one and only vice-presidential debate is closing in on us so we have b
of murder. in mexico a drug cartel leader is believed to have been killed in a shoot out with marines. he is known as the executioner is suspected in hundreds of killings. his death comes as marines captured another alleged failed leader who is also suspected in hundreds of killings there. he is also believed to be responsible for the death of the jern jet ski erhardt lee. >> more bad news workers of a a battery plant are feeling the effects from the car's lack of demand. here to explain all of this diane macedo. >> december bite getting the 150 million love our money to get the volt batteries before a single battery has been produ d produced. a a plant aped in 2010 surrounded by so much hype even obama tanded the ground breaking. >> you are showing ow manufacturing jobs are coming right back here to the united states of america. >> it was supposed to create hundreds of new jobs and produce 15,000 batteries a year. they have employed 200 batteries a year. the machine paid by a plant in south korea. it is also taxpayer subsidized had its own production issues. a spokesman tells foxnews.co
of congress you showed a scale model of a wall you said should be built on the southern border with mexico. do you feel like that is the way to go? king: what i said about that, people said we can't build a wall. well, it will get right down to the tipping kerr toys and show them because simply mental block how easy it is. i put together a model went down to the wall and here is how we do it. we could build a mile of this a day. that was the demonstration to put aside that argument that we couldn't do such a simple thing. 5500 miles of great wall of china. why would we think america couldn't build couple thousand. my position is this we don't have to build 2,000 miles of wall on the border. we build that till they stop simply going around the end that is the simple equation. >> wall details what? concrete barrier? brief explanation of that. king: pretty interesting when the president rid chruled a wall he was standing 600 feet from four walls, four fences and walls and two moats along the border but i described it as this. it is a type of concrete system you would slip form a foundational tren
responses seen in folks hooked on drugs and alcohol. a middle schoolteacher in new mexico tells parents there's another reason for the ban, she doesn't like those red fingerprints, so no cheetos for you. jon: i'm addicted to lots of snack foods. jenna: they're getting a bad wrap. jon: i think some of those folks need more to work on. >>> the reaction of the arrest of a bangladeshi man accused of trying to blow up the federal reserve in new york city. we'll hear from someone who says he's acquainted with this suspect. -- joint operation center in downtown manhattan. the suspect was followed by a surveillance team, also an arrest team with the fbi, tracking 21-year-old quazi mohammad nafis from his home in queens to a warehouse on long island where he loaded a van with 20, 50-pound bags of ammonium nitrate. put it in trash cans, covered it with a tarp and headed downtown to the federal reserve bank with a fbi agent along for the ride, attaching the dead naturer to the bomb and parking the van in front of the federal reserve bank and going with this undercover officer to a room at the mill
-immigrant candidate? >> i would say of the four of us, yes. >> that's simply inexcusable. my father was born in mexico. my wife's father was born in wales. >> we discover to our shock that mitt romney owns shares of fannie m fannie mae and freddie mac. >> if he comes off aggressive, what should the president do? >> i actually think this is a real challenge for governor romney and if he falls into the trap of being as aggressive in the primary, that will backfire. the difference is that in the primary nobody liked the republican candidates. so when mitt romney attacked newt gingrich or attacked rick santorum, he wasn't punished by voters for that because no one liked one of them more than the other. if he goes after the president very aggressively who is pretty popular with the american people, one of the most popular politicians in the country, frankly, i think there will be a backlash. people don't like him and he needs to get over that hump. and so he's in a box of being -- he needs to contrast with the president but he can't be too aggressive. >> can i just jump in real quickly? i think that we for
-- and forme house member and governor of the house, governor of minnesota. -- of new mexico. and i figured i would let them all sit down first then figure out which one was my chair. >> i come to -- that's be why senator mccain, you're the brave man here. you worked with senator crist and the majority leader while you all held those jobs. but it doesn't happen very often before people take office. and we have wonderful examples from or former presidents. i mean bill chriss campaigned against you, but he didn't defeat you. president carter defeated >> and now he works with and with george w bush as well. and the time i was interviewing president bush was when i was doing a piece on the former president. in the same i don't understand what's going on in washington. said when i was minority leader in the house and my father and your father was the majority leader of the house, he said we would get in the cab together and we would say what are we going to argue about? and he said this is a legitimate debate. and it was part of -- for heaven's sakes, we were the leader of our party. but then we w
militarily instead of promoting the process. the process that is in place with the support of mexico and colombia and panama and venezuela -- instead of supporting the process, our administration has been supporting covert activities in it for what was to keep the revolution going to overthrow the sandinista government. el salvador was not pushing the head of the government toward the correction of human rights problems that exist there. now this administration seems almost befuddled by the fact that nicaragua is moving to participate in the process. alabama silo door is reaching out to be guerrillas to negotiate peace. -- el salvador is reaching out to the guerrillas to negotiate peace. >> many time in its history, the united states has gone to war to defend freedom. does your answer mean you would be willing to forgo the use of military force even if it meant the establishment of a soviet- backed dictatorship so close to our own borders? >> i assume you are speaking about the government of nicaragua. we can work with the government to achieve a pluralistic society. they do have ele
, at that time in mexico, a worker cost general motors $7 an hour. in china, $4.50. i have been to general motors plants in shanghai and talk about mexico, and those plants are every bit as efficient as the ones here. this is one of our great challenges, which is not how to preserve jobs, but how to have growing wages. >> steve makes a good point. look at the parts sector. 2005, a parts unit at a 50,000 employees in the united states. they closed all but a couple plants in you as they have less than 5000 employees here. today,look at the oem's are they building new plants today? mexico. all the company's are making big investments in northern mexico to build more plants at capacity, in large part because of the difference in cost. the remaining jobs in the parts sector, which there are more jobs on the parts sector versus the manufacturers, have seen tremendous pressure on wages down word. -- downward. a family of four making that $14 an hour qualifies for food stamps. it raises questions about is the manufacturing sector, is the auto sector going to be competitive long term? remember, we still d
. >> on earnings and revenues sending citi shares higher. u.s. mortgage business and lending mexico helped boost results. >> microsoft's back in the music business unveiling a service that could compete with the likes of pandora and itunes. we have an exclusive with the head of their interactive entertainment straight ahead. softbank to buy 70% of sprint for $20 billion marking the largest ever foreign acquisition by a japanese company bringing together the third biggest mobile carriers of japan and the united states. it was said, i'm a man and every man wants to be number one, not number two or number three. masayoshi son. >> audacious two. one assumes he is rational as well. usually only rational people have that access to -- >> godzilla-like approach and looked like mothra. >> you know, it is a large deal. no way around that and, of course, somewhat complex try to break it down for you if you're a sprint shareholder you'll have the opportunity to ee will exto get either 730 in cash and/or own 30% of newco, new sprint and it will probably end up splitting 55/45. for 55% of your holdings so 730
to mexico, south america, or the caribbean islands. so you guys going to sign up for this? very funny. say who you vote for. if the other guy wins then they let you get out of the country. >> the motto is live free or fly. take off on new hampshire. >> i think it is awesome. i pick turks and caicos. >> you always hearing people will do this. remember in 2000 george bush was elected, barbra streisand and susan sarandon, couple others said they would move out. they never did. melissa: no. >> i think round-trip tickets or one way? >> i think one way. melissa: we're talking about jetblue. that is what they wanted. congratulations, jetblue. this one is hilarious. arnold schwarzenegger former governor of california revealed debate strategy in the 2003 recall. he was up against arianna huff fimg ton. >> when we got into the details i rather use comedy and humor. that is why arianna huffington played into all my stuff. she is perfect. she is whining. arnold you always do this, and you're table. you're making so much money. melissa: that is pretty good impression. who knew, sort of like double acce
about a death certificate, how is that going to i going to be able to receive one knowing mexico is kind of the people who have to issue that in order for me to receive the death certificate. but the nice thing about this news coming out, mexico for the first time is saying that they do believe the zetas cartel killed david and that he was murdered in mexico and they have never admitted to that in the last two years. for them to admit that is huge. >> gretchen: right. but also it takes you out of the loop because let's be honest, there were people who thought you were involved in your own husband's murder. >> correct, yeah. for the last two years there has been critics and this is the first time they're saying, look, the zeta cartel did murder david hartley and did murder my husband and they're taking me out of that and they're admitting to it. if anything, that's huge for me. >> gretchen: nothing will bring your husband back, but i know that any piece of information and this arrest brings some sort of closure for you. i hope that you can also get the remains of your husband and continue
that there was no discussion about latin america, mexico, no discussion of cuba or haiti. in mexico, the drug war is very intense. we have and border issues there. it was very telling that these campaigns did not get into those issues in any depth, or at all in some cases. i guess it just circles me back to they clearly believe -- certainly the republicans clearly believe that the economy is the overriding issue for voters. 1.5 million voters in this state are hispanic. many of these hispanic voters have a fairly recent ties to their homeland and other parts of the world. i think that not addressing that community more directly was perhaps a mistake that night. host: jeb bush, the former florida governor, and the head of the free cuba center in dc write in today's "wall street journal" -- "president kennedy showed fortitude and resolve in forcing the soviet union to stand down. whoever wins the election ought to deal similarly with today's intimidation and deception from the castro regime." boca raton, florida caller -- brian crowley, did you want to jump in on that? guest: one of the things missed by pe
of the mexico, united states, and candidates, -- canada. >> i am sorry, mr. sadler, that you feel obliged to attack my wife. >> i am not attacking her. you disagree with her. >> i think that is unfortunate you are willing to go there. >> i am not attacking her. it is a document that she worked for condoleezza rice with. >> you are talking over each other. silence, please. i'll let you respond, then we will begin to wrapup. begin. >> my broader point -- there is a sharp difference between mr. sadler and me. his policies, whether supporting gay marriage, supporting an income tax in the state of texas, and mr. stat -- sablan used to routinely introduced himself as being the guy who supports income-tax. >> you said i introduced myself around the state as a person who supports income tax. that is an absolute lie. >> note it is not. >> yes it is. >> i never supported an income- tax. i had the responsibility of looking at the tax system of texas, something he would not know anything about because you have never served in a legislature. this was to serve -- pay for our children's education. i had
, moved operations to mexico. newton lost about 1,800 jobs and millions from its local economy. >> our main focus for newton right now is... is getting people back to work as well as jasper county. so, i mean, our focus is... is employment. >> reporter: chaz allen has been mayor here for nine years, we caught up with him after a charity motorcycle ride. he says two companies have moved into newton, building windmill towers and turbines and employing almost 1,000 people. allen's support is squarely behind president obama thanks to the wind energy tax credit designed to help these businesses grow. >> mitt romney's message is to get rid of the wind production tax credit. well, that's big here because we've got t.p.i. and trinity both producing wind turbines and wind towers, and that's a critical factor for us to keep those plants moving past 2013. >> reporter: o. kay henderson says these single issue voters add up quickly in such a small state. >> if iowa does again come down to a few thousand votes, these sort of narrow cast issues can have a huge effect. and so that is why you see the o
